hi raaj mangat . i agree with you that htc m8 main disadvantage on screen buttons with htc logo,halh inch waste of screen . so im really dont like it on m8 but there no news about new max ( m8 max ) i ask to buy max now or wait till we see m8 max ?
hi anthony . thanks alot for helping me to choose so :
1- im also choose bigger is better 2- updates dont matter with me even im now using htc chacha with android 2.3 so i will satisfy with android 4.3 and it doesnt matter with me the updates after 2 years 3- i really loved finger scan and its advantage for me than UI6 in m8 .. any way my last question is : im sure that max with snapdragon 600 + 2 g ram is equal to m8 with snapdragon 801 + 2 g ram as aperformance so is it true or false ? because i read that all pple say no lack with max .

Mostafa Gad, 05 May 2014i need decision please about ( max or m8 ) even im not interested about camera quality so 4 pi... moreBoth phone are great. The major differences are the camera, screen size, finger print scanner and updates cut-off date.
You said camera donít matter to you so you just have 3 things to look at.
Which screen size would you like more? (For me, bigger is better and applies to the battery too)
HTC Android update window is only 2 years from release date, that means the one max would stop getting updates 5 months before the M8 (how much of a big deal is that to you?)
Finger print scanner allows you to have a complex alphanumeric lock screen password but quickly get past it with the swipe of a finger. (Donít work when your finger is wet. Then you have to enter that long password you made)
Both are snappy so the CPU speed/age donít really matter and the ONE max is supposed to get sense 6 May/June so UI version donít matter as well.
Hope that helped.

I suggestions one max is better than m8.m8 screen look like same as m7,reson on screen buttons.htc m8 main disadvantage on screen buttons with htc logo,halh inch waste of screen.

If you check in your boot loader and it doesnít say ***LOCKED*** in the first line. And S-ON in the second line. Then you are not going to get any updates from HTC as your boot loader has been tampered with.
If you donít know how to get to the boot loader you can read my post with time stamp 2014-03-09 14:10 where I talked about clearing your cache partition. (itís part of those instructions)
Raaj Mangat, 04 May 2014Hello Anthony, please suggestions me,how to benefits of rooted or non rooted htc one max.and b... moreBenefit of rooting is you can install whatever you like, no matter how harmful it can be to the security of your phone (and you can try to undo the SD CARD slot restriction)
On the down sideÖ. In a rooted ONE MAX, the finger print scanner will not work. This is to protect your print from malicious software. Also you will stop getting OTA updates as your phone has to be ďS-OffĒ by HTC Dev to unlock the booth loader which also stops you from getting updates from HTC.
I canít tell you which cooked ROM is best as I donít see anything Wong with the HTC ROM in the first place, so I havenít tried any cooked ROMs (and donít plan to). Not getting my data jacked is more important to me. But if you still want to root. Follow the link below.
i need decision please about ( max or m8 ) even im not interested about camera quality so 4 pixel is enough for me and finally i want aphone for along time without change so it must be a HERO for me . now what to buy ( max or m8 ) ?
Anonymous, 04 May 2014whats your opinion about max after you purchased m8 ? whats your advice pls ( max or m8 ) ?M8is just great nice looking phone performance is bit fast camera quality same as that of max bit of change with sense six.
But nobody can beat max for its massive display scribble functions on the large screen.
And max is best for watching multimedia.
Only one big difference is m8 is easy to handle with.
I think once we get sense update for themax ni need ti change your phone.
Max will become ultimate phone ones it get software update.
hi.my one max has t mobile sim unlock rom .but everytime I check for kitkat update it says your phone is up to date.so t mobile users still on android 4.3 or what?tnx

Hey guys..... I wish to buy this monster flagship coming from great great HTC and my question is... These devices have non removable battery with aluminum uni body. If the battery dead what will happen to the phone? can we replace the battery? or what will happen to the phone? Please give me a suitable answer as soon as possible. Thank you.
A small information to you.today I sold my max and purchased m8.
I just couldn't control myself from the looks of m8 and its performance in every way.
Thank you very much for your advice in many areas where you are suggesting about max.

It appears that you do lots of home work to know more about MAX you made me to stick to MAX even often I am tempted to purchase m8.
Good thing going bro thanks again
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2014I have the Samsung note 2 and when i updated to jellybean 4.3 the screen resolution changed dr... morePixel density is a count of physical lines of pixels in a 1 inch vertical distance of screen when held in landscape like a television.
Using the one max as an exampleÖ..
It has 1080 lines of pixels in landscape.
Using a ruler, the screen is approximately 2.875 inch tall when held in landscape like a TV.
1080 lines, divided by 2.875 inches = 375.65
That is the appox pixel density.
There is no way in this world that software is going to pack more lines of pixels in the 1 inch distance.
Not even if your name a Samsung :)
To increase pixel density you would have to get a new screen that actually has more lines of pixels per inch.
Hope you understood that.
What can be done by software is improve the video driver commands on how it displays a picture/video on the 1080x1920=2,073,600 pixels that make up the screen.
Using contras, hue, saturation, refresh rate and (image pixels interpolation, when the picture/video being displayed has less than a 1080x1920 in resolution) a next improvement is how much power it takes to do all those calculations.
So if you askingÖ.
Could your low res pictures look better with a software update? The answer is yes. But it donít work for HTC so just like you i have to wait and see.
Could the power consumption be less with the update? Yes because the drivers in the M8 are better designed than that of the M7 based models.
Could the update change the physical make-up of the screen of an old phone to increase pixel density? LOL Iíll let you answer that one.
Anthony, 24 Apr 2014What do you mean by screen quality?
A software update canít change what the screen is mode o... moreI have the Samsung note 2 and when i updated to jellybean 4.3 the screen resolution changed drastically and anyone will easily notice the difference in quality. It was as if pixel density was increased. I am not the only one saying this if you go through note 2 forum here in gsmarena you will see other people said the same thing. I only thought that if Samsung can do it htc can do it also. And am am still saying that screen quality might become as good as m8 with software update.
At note 2 forum someone even made this statement " DID SOMEONE TOUCHED MY PIXEL DENSITY?"
